For newly-weds seeking rustic chic, escape to Hafod Glan Gwy perched on the banks of the River Wye or Cider House near Abergavenny. Tailor’s Cottage or Hilltop are both in quiet Snowdonia Valleys, Tamar Cottages are in Devon’s Tamar Valley.
Hafod Glan Gwy was chosen by the Times this year as one their Best Romantic Getaways and was 1 of 50 best weekend retreats in the Independent so you don’t just need to take ours and our guests word for it that this cosy cabin is perched on banks of the River Wye is an idyllic retreat. Just 7 miles South East of Hay on Wye the cabin is compact but perfectly formed with ‘one-room living in a contemporary and a bed that folds down from the cupboard but which we are frequently told is the most comfortable our guests have ever slept in.
Fishing, canoeing, biking, riding and climbing can all be enjoyed nearby. There is also a good choice of places to eat including the Griffin or Bridge Inn and the more luxurious Llangoed Hall or Felin Fach Griffin. A visit to Hay on Wye with its intriguing book and coffee shops is a must.
Cider House was given the honour of Best Romantic hideaway by the Times and we and our guests agree that this cosy cottage really is a wonderful romantic escape. In a peaceful, countryside location but just 7 miles from Abergavenny the cottage tempts you to stay and enjoy the stunning master bedroom or cuddle up in front of a roaring fire in the cosy lounge but there is lots to explore nearby too.
